They are original MinIlites wheels, they look like 5 1/2" ones? . 004.JPG Peter where did you get the wheel nuts from ? they are minilites, but they were a machining trial and they sold them cheap! you will need to get new nuts made as they were sleve nuts and the washers were only ever mild steel.
